What's the difference between a quarter unit and a semester unit?
Please contact the Office of the Registrar at your home institution to review its policy.  As a general guide to convert quarter units into semester units, multiply the quarter units by .666.  For example, 4 quarter units from SCU may transfer as 2.67 semester units and 5 quarter units may transfer as 3.33 semester units.
